Noah Noble sir my Promise to the Public that i would review your eight columns Snukst now be complied with Aud although i acquit you of writing any part it yet As you permit it to appear signature you must Bear the responsibility which makes it proper for me to a it dress you As Noah Noble. For your compliment of cunning amp a. Which you attach to me i am thankful and regret that there is not something in your composition which would entitle you to like respect however i will do you the Justice to allow that you Are vain without prudence vulgar without wit and proverbially deceitful your hypocritical Grin and Pinch by the Arm like base Money is nailed Down to the counter by every discerning Man. You make a piteous complaint be cause the article which appeared in the palladium Over the signature of. Quot a Democrat Quot was not published Over my own proper name and also because it did not appear in the papers of Indianapolis. You ought to have told the Public that your attack and falsehoods upon me appeared in the times at Centreville by Way of a reply to an article in the palladium and that the palladium was the proper place to meet that attack and although you deny any Agency in the article which appeared in the times permit me to Tell you that it will require stronger evidence than your Bare assertion coupled with that of your menial editor to convince Ine or the Public that you had no Agency in that article because you made the same statements to to soon after your removal with this addition which you confirmed with an oath Quot Bob Breckenridge has been appointed Register at fort Wayne who could not foe elected Constable in Brookville Quot you concealed yourself behind the Printer to make your attack there it was proper to meet you in your own Mode of warfare to bring you understandingly before the Public and my object in that particular has been accomplished. You know As does the Public that 1 am not Over anxious to conceal my opinions of your conduct nor to dread the consequences of publishing them when need be the your pen left to yourself is the least of All others to be dreaded and your person still less. A a Quaw with a frown and a Hazel swi cd would fright you into an attack of the dyspepsia. You virtually admit the b a again with pm of of the electors. I Sav part of the / elect a a because or. Smiley would a i not bargain with you and j Edge Lowe \ has expressed to me Bis regrets it hot eve Ltd a interfered in the matter o fintain yourself in office and remove a others who had voted with you at presidential election but Endea Yin a to evade the Force of it with the tji Avery of an Arnold Aud the hypocrisy of a Judas still the tracks of your a Ven foot May he seen in the slime and venom of every line you write. I was in the habit of constant Intercourse with you from March until september 1829, and never heard one word from you on the subject. It is True that i did after i Learned the disgraceful bargain had been entered into and aware that your object was to fix upon me in the eyes of the Public by your retention and my removal the odium of some improper conduct apply to or. St. Clair and Many other distinguished Jackson men Lor letters of character and explain action of conduct not Only to the Secretary but to the president himself and at the same time wrote to the Secretary of the Treasury informing him Quot that distinguished Meo of both political parties were acting in concert to procure my removal Quot and in making that remark i had particular allusion to your bar Sun with the electors furnished him with a key to the whole matter and since my removal have a written him a second letter in which i make the following very pointed remarks Quot All i Ever intended was to prevent myself from being singled out As an object of executive displeasure finding that not to be the fact my removal looses much of its that letter has doubtless been seen through the Agency of senatorial prerogative which i presume forms the basis of the crusade that is carried on by the Royal twelve against me for further Illus ration of this transaction the Public is referred to a dialogue below this article. It is not True As stated by you that i violated any Confidence in relation to your negro speculations nor did i know that you Ever sold the mulatto until i seen you charged in the newspapers with a traffic in human blood. It is True that when you arrived in Brookville from Virginia the ladies of that place always distinguished for their attention to strangers called at your residence to make their respects to Yorlady and some of them mistook the mulatto for the mistress and accosted her with the courteous name of mrs. Noble. This Story was current about town and is All i Ever heard or knew from you or others about the negro business but now baby like As if anxious to publish your own infamy you inform the Public that you Only acted in the character of Salesman and leave the Public to infer that the Price was employed to pay your losses in the Quot storm Quot or the expenses of bacchanalian clubs which is to be trumpeted fourth As acts of hospitality. You ought to recollect that acts of hospitality and Charity when cast up the obligations they create Are cancelled and few men hereafter will accept such favours when they know the Public is to be advertised of the fact Guidess it May be to subject you to the adage Quot that fools make feasts and Wise folks eat it is not True As stated that i with others wish to Stop the sunday mails but As you have been Busy circulating that Story for several months past i am gratified that you have brought the subject before the Public that i May not Only show that your statements Are false but show to your dear friends of Dearborn the character you sustain about it Indianapolis As a Man of veracity. A petition was presented to me requesting the repeal of the Law which requires the transportation of the mail on sunday but i did not Signet because As i had no conscientious scruples about it myself i was willing to leave the matter to Congress to decide on the constitutionality As Well As the expediency of the measure. Some years ago when i first took my residence in the neighbourhood of Indianapolis the great Eastern mail was made to arrive on saturday but afterwards from some arrangement of the postmaster general that mail was made to arrive on sunday. In it came All the patents and papers relating to the land office As Well As All the information from Congress and the Eastern cities which was an inconvenience to every body concerned in that mail. A petition was got up not by me but which i signed with great cheerfulness requesting the postmaster general to change the arrival of the mail to some Day of the week other than sunday. That petition you publish sign my name and say there were Twenty other signers if those names could be known i suspect without knowing the fact the name of Noah Noble would be found among them. I have signed do petition to Stop the sunday mails nor do i intend to sign any but As the stoppage of mails on the Sabbath Day is known to be in popular you Endeavor to torture a request to change the Day of arrival into a request to Stop the transportation of the mails besides it is not to gratify your friends of Dearborn As you falsely and hypocritically aver that you have lugged this subject int Yout eight columns but to Benefit if possible one of your relatives though rather remotely connected in whose Way to promo Tion i am like to be a stumbling Block. To your Vei y grave charge of a want of hospitality i will barely reply that whatever credit May be due to me for acis of the kind i Trust i shall always have modesty enough not to boast of it. When the hungry shall complain that they have entered my Domicil and they have not been fed or the naked complain that they have not been clothed then it will be time enough for me to defend myself against the charge of in hospitality. When i named your bacchanalian supper in contempt of tie state Temperance society 1 was mistaken in the year which does not alter the fact you did offer such a contempt in 1829, on the very evening or the one after the organization of that society. Like yourself came to Indiana in my Boyish Days lived in obscurity until i arrived at the yers of manhood unknowing amp unknown when a concurrence of circumstances together with the Good opinion of the Public brought me into Public notice. Since that time it is True,8 you say that i have uld Sev eral important Public offices 1 was elected to the convention twice elected sheriff and once elected brigadier Gen eral but always with your opposition when not engaged in the discharge of official duties my efforts have constantly been directed to the cultivation of the soil the Busi Ziess to which i was educated and although i have suffered great losses have kept enough of Terra Firma to act upon in Case of necessity. If the Public employments i have been favored with has thrown resources in my Way they have been employed in improvements that tend to the permanent wealth of the country but As you have been pleased to refer to my offices and emoluments let us reverse the Rule and apply it to yourself. You too have held several important offices have drawn ten or fifteen thousand dollars from the Public crib besides the profits of your negro speculations. Take a retrospective View of your whole career and see of you can Point to Otie single act of your life which will afford you Consolation in the hour of retirement or that has tended in the least particular to elevate the character or add to the permanent wealth or improvement of your adopted state. When did you engage in Felling the Forest ploughing the ground or join your Neighbours in the labours of Harvest whole career has been a continued round of extravagance and Folly without a single Peg on which you can hang an excuse. L7 your vanity is pointed at or your perfidy exposed you cry out persecution and invoke the Public sympathy. Should you consider this a High w Rought picture recollect you have brought it upon yourself and for the future when you wish to have an Eulogy pronounced on your family name that it is not to be done at the expense of my reputation. You refer to a letter written to judge Manwaring to prove that my acts Are not in accordance with the principles set Forth in that letter it contains my sentiments to the very letter. When i speak of rotation in office mean that kind of rotation which brings the incumbent once in a while in review of the people or their representatives for their acceptance or re a fiction. Indeed it is difficult for me to conceive How that government can properly be called a Republic where the tenure of its officers Are during life or Good behaviour which is nearly the same thing it is a Iodest and peaceable Way of getting rid of an incompetent or unfaithful Public officer for the people to say through the medium of the ballot Box that his services Are no longer needed. It was for this doctrine i contended in the convention and every Day s experience since convinces me of its propriety but i never did contend in the convention or elsewhere that the fact of holding one office should operate As an exclusion from All others though there seems to me to be a propriety in a change of officers and the consequent change and general diffusion in the emoluments thereof. It prevents the formation of aristocratic al moneyed associations and proud overbearing family monopolies the very thing you wish to accomplish. Be assured sir the people of this country will never consent to place the whole patronage of the state and a part of the National government in the hands of two Brothers to be disposed of for their aggrandizement both in a political and pecuniary Point of View. Such a course would be too Servile in its nature to be countenanced by people jealous of their rights and their Independence. In reply to your averments that i have changed my course in politics and my support of men and measures i have barely to state that 1 never claimed much of that kind of consistency which impels men to act in the support of party right or wrong but to approve what i believe to be right and reprobate what i believe to be wrong forms the basis of my political Creed both in relation 16 men and measures. What i have written must suffice for the present but if need be the Call my pen is not yet dry i shall whittle you Down to a proper Point As i did when you attempted to Transfer the people of Marion to Harbin h. Moore in the character of political Salesman although you had slandered him in the most tender Point a few Days before. Robert Hanna. Indianapolis 23d dec. 1830. We the undersigned do certify that we were present when the petition to Congress requesting the repeal of the Law which requires the transportation of the u. S. Mail on sunday was presented to Robert Hanna and that he refused to sign said petition. Nathaniel Bolton. Thos. H. Sharpe.
